Newbie - Help - Run Flat Question
I've placed a deposit and pick up my new ( 2011, 13,000 miles) 328i in 2 weeks. I'm old school and have never driven a car that didn't have a spare tire. I did a lot reading on the run flats and understand they can be patched - recommended way is to remove tire and patch from inside. I also understand that the sidewalls are the life of these tires.
If I have a flat (not a flat, but no air pressure in the tires) is there a temporary fix that will prevent damage to the sidewalls until I can have the tire properly repaired? I've read of tire repair kits that may do this. Exactly what and where are these kits - we talking about the spray can flat repair or something else? What works the best??? Also, is a very small compressor good to keep in the car, to keep as much air in the tire as possible until it can be fixed? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Speaking of old school - there ain't no dipstick?????????????????
